          • Microtubules grow out of pericentriolar material.
      • Centrosome replicates itself during interphase (if cell is going to divide).
      • Identical centrosomes move away from each other during prophase.
      • Take up opposite poles by metaphase.
        • Microtubules from both centrosomes form spindle fibers.
          • Spindle fibers pull chromosomes to opposite poles during anaphase.
    www.freelivedoctor.com
  • 42. Telomeres and Cell Division
    • Decreased ability of cells to divide is an indicator of senescence (aging).
      • May be related to the loss of DNA sequences at the ends of chromosomes (regions called telomeres).
        • Telomeres serve as caps on the ends of DNA.
          • Prevent enzymes from mistaking the normal ends for broken DNA.
        • DNA polymerase does not fully copy the DNA at end-regions.
          • Each time a chromosome replicates it loses 50-100 base pairs in its telomeres.
      • Germinal cells can divide indefinitely due to an enzyme telomerase.
        • Duplicates telomere DNA.
    www.freelivedoctor.com
  • 43. Meiosis (Reduction Division)

        • Homologous chromosomes line up side by side along equator of cell.
        • Spindle fibers pull 1 member of the homologous pair to each pole.
          • Each of the daughter cells contains 23 different chromosomes, consisting of 2 chromatids.
    www.freelivedoctor.com
  • 44. Meiosis (Reduction Division) (continued)
      • Second division:
        • Each daughter cell divides, with duplicate chromatids going to each new daughter cell.
          • Testes: produce 4 sperm cells.
          • Ovaries: produce one mature egg, polar bodies die.

  • 45. www.freelivedoctor.com
  • 46. Cell Death
    • Pathologically:
      • Cells deprived of blood supply swell, the membrane ruptures, and the cell bursts (necrosis).
    • Apoptosis:
      • Cells shrink, membranes become bubbled, nuclei condense.
    • Capsases (“executioner enzymes”):
      • Mitochondria membranes become permeable to proteins and other products.
    • Programmed cell death:
      • Physiological process responsible for remodeling of tissues during embryonic development and tissue turnover in the adult.
